Do It Yourself

Up for a Saturday morning project? Our extensive range of customisable DIY kits includes pro-grade products for pro-grade results. With Australia’s largest range of colours, a custom colour mixing service, instructions, support and a kit for every job, it really is easy to restore your leather.

You can do it. No tools, just the right products and a couple of hours and you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner

Exposed leather is highly porous, easily taking in body and hair oil, perspiration, spills and soiling. Refinishing it with new coatings not only restores the aesthetics but also builds a protective shield against contaminants which helps leather last longer.

Don’t think you can do it? Look what this customer achieved!

“…gave me a perfect result

“Thanks … for all your advice on how I could restore my badly faded aniline leather couch. After a good clean followed by the Dye#29 and a final coat of Restoration Cream#32, both of which you colour matched…the couch is now back to its original colour looking almost good as new”

Question

“What is the difference between the products for cars and furniture?  I am repairing damage to the leather of my car, but the colours listed in that category don’t match the colour of my car.  Is the furniture product different?” – MS

Answer

“The products are the same. They are suitable for use on car and furniture leather as well as all sorts of other leather applications. They are divided into groups to help you find one that’s just right for your job. Our 3 colour charts:

Master colours – Mix a universe of colours from this core range. Also, if for example, you just want a straight black, pure white or bright yellow, the master colour chart is the right place to look

Furniture colours – These are popular colours used on furnishings but you can use them on anything you want

Car colours – There are many car leather colours and most of them can be found in our range. If you want to use one of them on a handbag or your dining chairs, go for it.

All colours are mixable and whichever you choose, the Master Colour Set and the Colour Adjustment Kit are perfect for tweaking your colour.”

Choosing the Right Repair Kit

There are 2 types of repair kits and a few different size options. Kits provide all the gear you need at a great bundle price. Depending on your job, one type may be more suitable than the other.


Repair Kits

Repair Kits are ideal for large or small complete refinishing projects. You can change the colour, recolour or touch-up a few scuffs or isolated sections. When covering stains, leather filler or treating leather that is very good condition, this is the way to go.

Colour Restoration Kits

Colour Restoration Kits are designed for refreshing the entire surface with the existing colour. When you want to give your old sofa a quick and easy make-over, Colour Restoration Kits are the answer. Coverage is semi-opaque and increases with each coat giving you lots of control. Scratches, scuffs and colour wear are dramatically minimised giving a remarkably renewed look and feel.


Customize Your Kit

With 4 kit sizes and the option to customize what’s in the box, you are sure to find the one for your job. Get what you need and nothing you don’t.

How Much Paint Will You Need?

When it comes to calculating the amount of leather paint needed, there are a few variables. Here’s a coverage table to help you determine how much paint you might need.

Just Want Paint?

You just want to wack a bit of paint over the scratch, right? Well, that will work but, there’s a reason for all of those kits at super keen prices. Correct surface prep, priming and finishing with a topcoat ensures optimum adhesion and a more wear-resistant finish. There are a few naked truths in leather finishing:

  • Paint sticks but it sticks better to a primed surface. Paint wears well but it wears better when you give it a clear protective shield or topcoat
  • Short-cuts can backfire: self-priming formulations can’t give optimum results as primer and paint do two different things
  • Not all leather paints are equal – beware watered down formulations missing the crucial ingredients that make leather paint durable

What type of leather?

There are 5 main types of upholstery leather. Using the right products for your leather type will give you optimum results. Use our guide to determine your leather type.

Aniline & Semi-aniline

Pigmented

Nubuck & Suede

Waxed or Pull-Up

Man-Made

The Recolour Process – It’s so easy!

1 . Clean & Surface Prep

Spray, scrub and wipe then lightly scuff the surface using super-fine sandpaper. Clean the dirt you can see and the dirt you can’t. Lasting results start with good surface prep. It’s important to remove soiling, silicones, waxes and oils

2 . Prime


Priming promotes optimum adhesion between the leather and the new coatings. Super easy to apply, you simply sponge it on evenly. It penetrates partially and dries quickly

3. Colour

Could it be any easier? Just apply a couple of coats using a sponge allowing drying between each one. Self-levelling, the paint dries darker than when wet

4. Topcoat

You know the drill. Apply by sponge in long even strokes. The topcoat delivers desirable protection to the colour coatings and improved wear resistance. Two thorough coats are recommended
